A downloadable game for Windows

Buy Now$9.00 USD or more

Create your own, private, medieval world with the help of a few Keflings!

Play as a Giant and help the tiny Keflings build up and beautify their Kingdom. Start out small, unlocking new blueprints, buildings and tasks as you work towards designing and building a Kefling castle.

You can download the TRIAL VERSION (demo) for free and see if you like it.  A Kingdom for Keflings is an older game (developed in 2008), so it's a good idea to try the demo to make sure it runs nicely on your PC.

When you buy the game here on itch.io, you'll get access to download a License Key that unlocks the full game from the same demo you already have installed.

Network Play:  You can play with another player over a LAN network or over the Internet.  For play over the internet, one of the players will need to set up port forwarding (e.g. see https://www.noip.com/support/knowledgebase/general-port-forwarding-guide/ ) for port 17432.  This is technical, but fairly common for multiplayer games.  If you don't understand port forwarding or don't want to do it, then please don't purchase the full game expecting multiplayer play.  There is no matchmaking service for A Kingdom for Keflings on Windows.

This is the Windows version of A Kingdom for Keflings.  For the Xbox 360 or Xbox One games, please visit the Microsoft store pages for A Kingdom for Keflings or A World of Keflings.

Sorry to be asking this here, I bought the game on your Website but it seems that the Map Packs are only available here. Will I need to repurchase the game in order to get them?

You can get them from our website as well:  https://ninjabee.com/games/akingdomforkeflings/  There's a button there that says "Windows DLC".  If you click that, you should be given options for dowloading the map packs for Windows.

Sorry for the late reply. Thank you for getting back to me so quick and I did find it! I appreciate it, I love your games!

I agree with Lucki Thanks so much! I hope A World for Keflings could also come to pc some day!

Thank you guys so much for releasing this on pc, I played this game on the xbox 360 and I loved it. I have been wanting to play this game so bad but I did not want to buy a 360. This game is truly life changing.

Thank you!

Hello, I'm from Mexico and I just bought the license to be able to enjoy the game, but it's not in Spanish and I don't understand English much, does anyone know if I can change the language :C

Hola, también soy de México y tuve la misma duda, investigué un poco y no pude encontrar nada, la versión de Xbox 360 (que puede ser jugada en Xbox One y Series X/S con la retrocompatibilidad) si tiene traducción al español muy bien lograda. 

(1 edit)

¡Hola!  Se puede cambiar la idioma si está dispuesto a editar un archivo técnico.

En la "fsall" carpeta es un archivo "settings.ini", que se puede editar con qualquier text editor.  Agregue esta línea en alguna parte.


Guarde el archivo.  Reinicie el juego y el texto debe estar en español.

Es posible que haya algún texto que no se traduzca correctamente (razón por la cual esta no es una configuración en los menús), pero debería estar hecho al 99%.

¡Buena suerte!

¡Hola! Vea la respuesta más abajo, por favor.


I'm so happy to see this game ! I am very happy to hear you're bringing the other one to pc too!

omg, seeing this is so nostalgic! I played a world of keflings so much on xbox! I hope that gets ported to pc soon too :)

(1 edit)

This was the most chill games and one of my favorites on Xbox. Happy times

how do I setup local play so my wife and daughter can play together

Hi!  If you mean two players on a single computer, that's not a feature in this game.  (It was something we added to the sequel, A World of Keflings, which isn't available on Windows yet).

If you mean playing over a LAN with two computers, you can connect using the options under the Multiplayer menu in-game.

Ho-ly shit. I just set my 360 back up and have been loving playing WoK on 360. Probably won't play it on PC because I really like the Xbox avatar but oh my God seeing it ported over officially is true bliss

Awesome.  Thanks for playing our games on whatever platform.  :)  Also, I'm impressed that you have an Xbox 360 that's still functional!

Hey wife and I are huge fans of the game is there anyway to use a controller instead of mouse and keyboard for kingdom for keflings?

Unfortunately, no controller support.  I'm sorry about that!  We're working on getting A World of Keflings adapted to Windows, and our intention is to support controllers there!


Oh my goodness, I thought you guys had vanished from the internet. It's so good seeing the first keflings game finally put on pc!!!! Thank you!!!


Thank you!  We're (very slowly) also working on the second Keflings game for PC, when we have time!

Is there a list of PC controls that I can find somewhere? I seem to remember being able to dance on the 360 in order to attract unassigned Keflings... very useful as they wander around. Is that action available on PC?

I think all necessary controls should be accessible from the mouse.  You can do some things, but not everything, with the keyboard.

Unfortunately, dance-to-attract keflings (among other emotes) is a feature in the sequel game A World of Keflings, which isn't available on PC yet but will be some day!

Is there anyway to turn buildings on a kingdom for keflings? Just got the keep built and was gonna build walls around it but realized the walls just face straight so I can't make a square... I'm on Xbox by the way

Nope, no way to turn buildings.  They're designed to look a certain way from a certain angle, and have very boring backsides.  :)

You can build walls around things - the scene you see in the background of the main menu is an example of that.  Walls connect automatically with each other when you place them next to each other.

ohhhh thanks!

Is there a list of PC controls available? I am trying to break a building.

Unfortunately, I think that's an action you can't do from keyboard...  When you're facing a building, you should see an action button at the bottom of the screen to punch the building, and you can click that button to punch.  Punch it three times to break it down.

I threw in an extra dollar for this. Please get on the steam port for World of Keflings, I loved it as a kid and would love a more permeant way to own it.

Thank you!

Im trying to use an xbox 1 controller to play and its not working. Is there any controller compatibility for the pc version of the game?

Unfortunately, no.  Sorry about that!

Is there a possibility we can get A World for Keflings on Itch as well? I would really rather not create a Microsoft account to play the game.

Also, I am experiencing an issue with A Kingdom for Keflings where I cannot choose which display the game runs on. Any advice on how to resolve that?

Yep, send an email to support@ninjabee.com and I can send you instructions, but the short version is to edit the settings.ini file, remove the semicolon from the start of ";Adapter = 1", and change that number to pick a monitor.

We've got plans for AWoK on Steam, at least, and presumably itch.io, but haven't had time yet to get to that project, despite our best intentions.  At some point yes!

My game settings file doesn't have ";Adapter = 1"

Sorry about that - if there's no "Adapter" line already in the settings.ini, you can just add one (anywhere, but in the [GRAPHICS] section makes sense.)

Just make sure it looks like

Adapter = 1

(without a semicolon).  Then experiment with that number to pick the monitor you want.

Hi NinjaBee! First off, wanted to say I love keflings and it was one of my most played games on XBLA. I would love to see more kefling games one day and can't wait to see what you come up with!

Thanks very much!

This is the game that got me into gaming and im glad i randomly thought about purchasing it, thanks for making my childhood awesome.

Thanks for already being awesome!

How do I create a short cut on my computer? I can only locate the download files in my file manager and not the actual game to run. I would like to have easier access when I want to play. Thank You!

The game is usually installed somewhere like C:\Program Files (x86)\NinjaBee\AKingdomForKeflings\ .  The executable itself is "A Kingdom for Keflings.exe".  You can right-click that to create a short cut there and move it, or right-click-drag somewhere else (e.g. desktop) and choose "Create shortcut here".

I loved this game on my Xbox 360, I'm so glad it's still alive and doing well! With World of Keflings being another success, are you planning on creating any games for current-gen consoles or PC? Much love, Jago <3

At some point, yes!  Nothing to announce for any platform, currently, though.

Loved this game when I was growing up, decided to get it to relive the memories however I cannot get the game to run past 640 x 480 resolution, tried adjusting it through the fsall folder and cannot click the graphic button in the settings without the game crashing and saying " error: access violation at 0x005032D7 (tried to read from 0xFFFFFFFC), program terminated". Any help would be appreciated :)

Hi evilgeorge.  Sorry about the trouble... Could you email the details to support@ninjabee.com?  It'll be easier for me to follow up there!  Thanks!

This was my childhood and i was never able to play the ful version. now im here with my full version happier than ever. honestly, i couldn't ask for anything better

Thank you!

Hi NinjaBee, I was wondering if you guys had any plans of adding the old ability to play as our XBOX avatars within the PC version of the game since they have made it possible to load and use avatars on PC through the xbox game bar.


No plans to do this with A Kingdom for Keflings any time soon, but we'll look into it, maybe for AWoK.

Do you want to do join the summer bundle, submit your game here


This game is my full on childhood, I'm so glad I can still play it now. You guys are amazing! Thank you!

Thank you!


So I know that Handful of Keflings might not have done well on steam, but have you ever considered putting Kingdom, and World onto steam as remasters?


We are planning on it, at least for World!


I would die to play world of keflings again !


I remember trying this on an Xbox as a kid many years ago. Suddenly remembered it existed, and I'm pleasantly surprised to see the PC version is still up and you guys are still actively responding.

Definitely going to pick this up now and relive some memories. Cheers, NinjaBee team 👍


Thanks very much!

Been making a game very much alike to this game minus the keflings themselves and with quite a few other features just hoping when i release it you guys wont sue me LOL. I'd love to meet some of the devs for this game, i think its a masterpiece and super unique!


Thank you!  I look forward to checking out your game!

Hello, Perhaps opening a CrowdIn project to consider translating the game? :)

You can have all of my money for A World of Keflings I CANNOT WAIT


Sorry about that!  I promise we're going to do it!  Hopefully soon!

I can pay AAA games price, that game is my chillhood and is so beautiful, i hope you guys release it asap! <3

I am curious as to how I view the dlc in the game. Is there a section in the game that shows the dlc or is it already ready to play when starting a new game? And also keep up the absolutely amazing work on this series! It was awesome on the xbox 360 and it is even better here on pc!

Thanks!  The DLC is in the form of different playable maps - they should show up when you start a new game and see a "Choose your Kingdom" screen.

I do not see a "Choose your Kingdom" option and I installed the whole thing via the itch.io ap. Do I need to do anything extra with that?

Ah, interesting... I had not tried the itch.io app.   I see - it seems to "install" the game installer (which you then run to actually install the game), but it doesn't know about the DLC packs.  The two DLC packs (downloadable through the itch.io website) are separate installers that you need to run.  They'll try to install the DLC in the location where your game got installed.  And you'll need to have the full game unlocked with the license key, if you haven't already.  Sorry for the confusion - the itch.io app does weird stuff in this case.  :-/

If you guys need help porting this to steam I'm down to help for free no credit needed. This is one of my favorite games of all time! I search Keflings at least once a month on steam and it makes me a little sad to only see a handful waiting for me. Thanks for all the heard work y'all have done!


Thanks!  I hope we're getting back to updating the old Keflings games this summer, but we'll see.  :)


hey i just wanted to say thank you so much for preserving this game through itch.io. AKFK and AWFK were some of my favorite Xbox 360 games growing up and unfortnitly my 360 no longer works but i did buy this and AWFK on the wiiu eshop while it was still up so i would always have these memories with me. plese keep contiuing on with what your doing and i hope to one day get to see your work again.

Thank you!


Is there any updates on A World of Keflings?

Not a very exciting update.  We're hoping to get back to working on A World of Keflings this summer, if all goes to plan!

I got a new pc and can't play anymore unless I buy the game again. How do I find a reinstall for when the game is already owned?

Reinstalling the demo is free through the "Download demo" option above.

To unlock the demo to the full game:

When you're signed in to your itch.io account, at the top of this page it should see "You own this game".  You can click on the "Download" button there to download more files, including the license key that unlocks the full game.  There are instructions in those files.

More Info:

You can also check your email for a purchase notification from itch.io, where there's more information about getting access to your purchased games, including a link to:


which is a good place to find downloads for any itch.io games you want to reinstall.

Everytime I try to download the demo it downloads and then i try to launch it and it then syas download failed and i cant find it anywhere in my files or apps. The only thing i can do is try redownloading it and then it does the same thing, What do I do? Edit: I found it in my files but it opens for a second then immediately closes

Hmm...  Is it the installer (AKingdomForKeflings_Setup) that closes immediately, or the game after it's successfully installed?

If it's the installer, that's confusing and I'm not sure what could cause that...

If it's the installed game, you could try compatibility settings:  find A Kingdom for Keflings.exe and right-click on it and choose "Troubleshoot Compatibility".  Or, go to "Properties" and then the "Compatibility" tab.

It's the installer, I download the demo and try to launch the very first thing that gets downloaded from the site and it either fails download in the site or doesn't fail but closes right after I open it

Hmm... I haven't heard of that kind of issue before.  I can help you more easily if you email support@ninjabee.com. Let's take this conversation there.

Hey, do you know how i can make the game launch on my main monitor so i can get my higher refresh rate? It keeps launching on my secondary monitor and if i just move it over i cant increase the refresh rate

If you're comfortable with (carefully) editing the fsall/settings.ini file, there's a graphics section where you can edit some graphics settings, including:

FullScreen = yes ; Full screen window
XScreenRes = 1920 ; Screen width
YScreenRes = 1080 ; Screen Height

(When you're using FullScreen, you should use a standard resolution supported by your monitor.)

And you can use this line

Adapter = 1

to pick which monitor to use (starting at 0).

Perfect, thankyou so much!


Oh my god, I never expected to see this again. TBH I'd forgotten about it. The nostalgia!!! :)



Hello, are you thinking about bringing a port of the game to world of keflings for pc soon?

It is a game that I loved as a boy and I would like to be able to play the experience again with my xbox avatar but now on PC :D
